With reports suggesting that HTC was to introduce its first Beats-equipped smartphone in the form of the HTC Vigor, the Taiwanese company has confirmed earlier leaks with a relaunch of its Sensation smartphone; the HTC Sensation XE.
Offering an upgraded 1.5GHz dual-core processor, four-times more internal storage with 4GB and a extremely hefty 1,730mAh battery, the Sensation XE not only delivers with its audio capability, it will also crunch data and deliver seamless playback of media whilst giving you more time between charges.
“The audio quality is a very important factor in mobile sound experience and we are working to push the boundaries not only for speech reception, but also for music, video and games up fully,” said Jason Mackenzie, president of global sales and marketing at HTC Corporation. “The HTC sensation XE delivers a truly incredible audio experience and is a further proof that we want to offer customers the best possible mobile experience.”
The Sensation XE retains the 4.3 qHD Super LCD touchscreen, 8MP rear-facing and VGA front camera and 768MB RAM but will ship with an in-built remote control for optimal Beats playback – something that HTC hopes will differentiate between its smartphones and rival handsets.
The HTC Sensation XE will debut in EMEA and Asia Pacific from late September, costing €589.
